Ted Nolan Speaks His Mind

from Canada Newswire,

In an exclusive with PuckLife Magazine, NHL pariah and lightning rod Ted Nolan comes clean on racism, sleeping with player’s wives and his controversial last days in Buffalo.

“Whenever this comes up, it’s always they said this or that. You know, never has anyone stood by what is said. Things like I was sleeping with player’s wives, getting drunk at practice, I mean, I think that is a directly racist comment. If someone could just stand by it, fine, it would be my word against theirs, but we can’t even do that”.

Nolan goes on to discuss why he hasn’t received another NHL head coaching offer since he left the New York Islanders in 2007-08.

Quite a few errors in this article, which can be read in its entirety if you choose the free trial.  For one, Nolan arrived in ‘96 not ‘98.  I also question the validity of the claim that Nolan was hired by Doug Moss and not John Muckler.  I get the impression that the writer just went along with whatever story Nolan told him about the whole ordeal.
